This weekend I'm borrowing a schroeder 1210 4ohm from Lex P. THANKS LEX! so far I've played it next to a ampeg portabass 212 (4ohms) and tonight/tomorrow I'll play it in place of my (2) aguilar gs112s at church. first, as seen in another thread, I was suprised that it weighed as much as it does (58 Lbs) according to my digital scale. I know "All prices and specifications are subject to change without prior notice." but I was hoping for lighter, louder, better tone all those things we bass players dream about... Playing the cab next to the ampeg 212 portabass. The schroeder was deeper, punchier and more reveiling in the highs than the ampeg. The ampeg seemed to have a more even tone through the frequency range low to high. I did not play either VERY loud, but "store loud", I was over at "fishbulb"s place of work "jim Harm's: my music store". The schroeder did seem to have a low-mid bump or 'hollowness' or "twang" not terrible, but there. this might be good for some kinds of guitars and might also help with cut-through. we played with three guitars fender jazz 4 string, and two different lakeland 5 strings. Again, the schroeder, was deeper especially on the 5 strings (I don't play 5) , but fishbulb was impressed with the low-end. also the schroeder had a less "directional" sound meaning it sounded better off-axis than the ampeg. If I could ONLY choose between the two and HAD to carry my own cabs I'd probably go with the ampeg, but if the mini sounds as good as the 1210 and weighs less than my aggie I might switch over to schoeder. I'll post a post-gig review with the aguilars tomorrow or early next week.
